Sulphur Mountain, Banff National Park
(4.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Head up Sulphur Mountain for extensive views of six mountain ranges in the Canadian Rockies. Named for the hot springs on its lower slopes, the mountain features both hiking trails and a scenic eight-minute gondola ride to its peak. At the summit, you'll find a 1903 meteorological observatory that still contains antique furnishings. The area at the top also includes a short historical walk and well-maintained observation decks where you can admire the scenery and snap photos. By using our Banff travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Sulphur Mountain and other attractions in Banff.
